in many ways of governor christie in new jersey, sort of metaphorically putting his arm around the president, telling him what a great president he was. last thing you would have expected say two weeks ago. what did you make of that? >> i thought it was a fair appraisal. look, governor christie and new jersey has a real problem. jersey shore devastated, plus all the electric outages and problems throughout a large part of the state. of course governor christie needs help. this is what happens when governors need help, they come to washington. and americans expect washington to help. there is a role for the commander in chief, for the president of the united states, when disaster strikes at home. that's what americans expect of their leader. >> were you pleased that the marathon was canceled? >> yeah. i think it was a smart move. i do. it's been -- new yorkers have been really terrific about this. people downtown in manhattan have been four days without light or power. the streets are dark. it's like sarajevo during the siege in the balkans and the thought of more people coming

christie has signed an executive order implementing odd/even rationing for gas purchases in 12 new jersey counties. odd numbered and even numbered license plates on alternating days. the human toll, meantime, it is growing. at least 22 people have now lost their lives here. the least populated of new york's five boroughs and the highest death toll. for staten islanders, especially, the idea of a global sports and media spectacle being held on their shattered doorstep, it was infuriating and understandably so. today, new york mayor michael bloomberg who had been pushing for the race backed down, saying the marathon had become a course of controversy and division. the thousands of runners from around the world are already here. minutes after the decision we sent our producers to central park to get reactions from runners. some were surprised to get the news. >> you are sure? >> reporter: i'm sure. >> oh, my god. >> we are from germany. we prepared for over a year for this run. that is bad, totally bad. >> what can we do? keep on running. >> we will come back next year. we will come back nex
christie of new jersey and bob mcdonnell of virginia. natural disasters spotlight and test the incumbent response. often overshadowing the political challengers. the latest gallup national tracking poll shows romney at 51% and president at 46. in ohio, which could decide the election, a new rasmussen tracking poll has romney ahead 50 to 48 in a buckeye state virtual tie yet there obama leads by two points in the real clear politics average of the recent ohio polls. romney went ahead with afternoon rally in iowa, but that is it for at least a day as the campaign takes a backseat to the storm. romney closing argument for final stretch is dubbed day one, job one, referring to the economy. he promises tax relief. north american energy independence. to repeal obamacare, block military cuts and balance the budget among other things. all of that is on hold. romney tonight will spend overnight in dayton, ohio, returning there without planned or scheduled campaign events tomorrow. it will likely be relief oriented but not clear it will take place in iowa. if the storm passed enough and opportunit
emergency subpoenaers out. weaver are echoing governor christie's advice that -- our responders will not go out until daybreak. so, right now, we are in a stand-by mode. >> so when somebody contacts you and needs urgent help, you are doing -- >> caller: we will go out there. we are going to assess -- the situation, the calls are coming in locally. if they need a local agency, need our assistance, we will go out there and assist. >> i know what the governor said. and i don't -- if somebody needs help and they contact you -- >> caller: judges, we are going to help. >> you are saying you are not not going to help until daybreak. >> caller: we are going to help. >> have you undertaken rescues in. >> caller: not at this point. >> okay. because you have not needed to, is that correct? >> caller: correct. >> what about evacuations, do you have any way of knowing how many folks heeded the evacuations in. >> caller: no. i don't have that number. >> how about the destruction? do you have any -- >> caller: no. we are still... we are going to get a lot of that information when day breaks. >> maybe, we
jersey governor chris chris stey is -- chris christie is known for speaking his mind. the governor was not happy on monday with the way the atlantic city mayor handled things as the hurricane approached. take a listen. >> for some reason to stay we now have a large number of people we can't quantify at this point in atlantic city, and at this juncture there is no other way to go. they will have to ride out the storm there and until at least 7:00 tomorrow morning. i cannot in good conscience send rescuers in as the storm is about to hit in the next hour. nor can i send them in the dark given all of the various hazards that would occur. >> the governor is making the poimt he doesn't want to risk more lives because the word did not get out as it perhaps should have for the people to evacuate in that region. >> there were about 500 people being rescued as the storm battered cape may and a lot of those people chose not to leave. >>> federal and state emergency services are doing their best to cope with the consequences of this monster storm. >> the new england states are taking their sh
's doing the right thing and i think it's correct for chris christie to thank him and say the president is being help of. i suspect every governor will tell you that they're paying attention. i don't think it helps him much. >> greta: what about friday when jobs report comes out? any impact two, three days out from tuesday? >> the problem for obama is any time the number gets better it turns out that is because people dropped out of the work force. and the last report was that this last quarter every new job unbalanced was a government job. i don't know of anyone who is confident about next year. i have seen small businesses out in missouri for todd akin. i don't see anyone out here saying i'm reved up. i think you could have a dramatic recovery if romney wins because there are a tremendous number of entrepreneurs who would like to do something if they had there was a sense of confidence. now if it goes up again, if it's 8.2 then, i think it's a big problem for obama. >> ohio. the ever important state. there is an ad that says that obama's chrysler deal undermines u.s. workers. gm's ceo
or ron paul, it was a long time out when i said if we don't run christie it will be romney and he'll lose. i took that back six months later because obama's made such a mess of the economy. i travel a lot out in america and people are really, really hurting. there are a lot of people who are unemployed, underemployed, they know they're not doing what they should be doing. obama care is coming down the track like a bullet train and a lot of people are going to have to go out of business or have already gone out of business. >> where do you give obama credit? most powerful arguments i hear are where a republican can give the democratic president some credit and vice versa, where a democrat can give mitt romney some credit. where do you credit the president? >> i like the drone attacks. i don't know why liberals like the drone attacks. if you're going to compare waterboarding a couple of terrorists at guantanamo three times to attacks on civilian populations to get one or two terrorists, i would say that the waterboarding is way better than that. but i think -- i think it's worth getting the
about 30 miles west of new york city. new jersey governor chris christie repeatedly warned residents about the potential dangers earlier. >> i'm very disappointed in the fact that some decided to disregard my instruction, in fact my order. and i'm concerned that it might lead to the loss of life. >> also, reports of homes flooded under several feet of water and several rescues have been under way including those stranded under cars while they were trying to escape. >> i'm scared to death. so many people are going to die today. >> authorities are working to evacuate hundreds of people from west atlantic city, where waters are dangerously high as well. so we've been talking quite a bit about new york city. that's the -- of course the highest population area that's been affected by this storm. and we want to give you a visual of the problem facing some city commuters in just a few hours. there will be no commute really. i look at the bridges and the tunnels that link manhattan to the outer boroughs. many are closed across the city. few details are available at this time about any mornin
